Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr. Seth Rich article kept alive in Rich v Butowsky, Roger Aronoff affidavit filed October 9, 2020, Aronoff did not write article

“The left, the Democrats, the Deep State. Obama holdovers employing high powered law firms and corrupt judges have done their best to hide and obfuscate the truth surrounding the DNC leaks and possible involvement by Seth Rich.”…Citizen Wells

“With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug. The first deals with the murder of the  Democratic National Convention (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia.”...Admiral James Lyons

“Assange testimony requested in Rich v Butowsky et al  August 24, 2020”…Citizen Wells

 

This was a head scratcher at first glance.

Perhaps it was an attempt to find a live witness to the drafting of the article attributed to Admiral Lyons?

From Aaron Rich v Ed Butowsky October 9, 2020.

“AFFIDAVIT
Roger Aronoff, being duly sworn, hereby deposes and says:
1. I have been a journalist and filmmaker for the past 50 years.
2. I was the Editor of Accuracy in Media (AIM) from 2010 through 2017.
3. I am currently the Executive Director and Editor of the Citizens Commission on National Security.
4. During the time I worked at AIM, I became friends with Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (ret.)
5. I proofread a number of columns, but certainly not all, for Admiral Lyons, which he would then usually submit to the Washington Times.
6. I was never asked by anyone and I never did write a first draft or any draft of a column for Admiral Lyons, ever at any time. The only thing I did was proofread what he had written. I would correct spelling, grammar and improve sentence structure. If l thought something was factually incorrect, I would correct it. All edits I made in the proofreading process were done by using the Review and Mark-up system that exists in Word. I would send the marked-up version back to Admiral Lyons, and he would take it from there. In most cases he accepted my proofing, but not always.
7. In the case involving the article he wrote about Seth Rich in February or March of 2017, no one asked me to write up a first draft, or any draft, and I am not sure that I did proof it at all. While I have been able to find some of the revised columns that I sent him back, I have been unable to find this one in particular, leading me to question if I ever reviewed it or proofed it at all. It is possible that I did, but if I did, that is all I did. But I have no specific memory of having proofed that particular column.
I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the forgoing is true to the best of my information, knowledge, and belief.”

The article referred to above was from the Washington Times, March 1, 2018 not 2017.

It was retracted by the Times.

“More cover-up questions

The curious murder of Seth Rich poses questions that just won’t stay under the official rug

– – Thursday, March 1, 2018

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug.

The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath.

The facts that we know of in the murder of the DNC staffer, Seth Rich, was that he was gunned down blocks from his home on July 10, 2016. Washington Metro police detectives claim that Mr. Rich was a robbery victim, which is strange since after being shot twice in the back, he was still wearing a $2,000 gold necklace and watch. He still had his wallet, key and phone. Clearly, he was not a victim of robbery.

This has all the earmarks of a targeted hit job. However, strangely no one has been charged with this horrific crime, and what is more intriguing is that no law enforcement agency is even investigating this murder. According to other open sources, Metro police were told by their “higher ups” that if they spoke about the case, they will be immediately terminated. It has been claimed that this order came down from very high up the “food chain,” well beyond the D.C. mayor’s office. Interesting.”

Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr. Obituary:

“Born in New Jersey to James A. and Marion F. Lyons, he entered the United States Naval Academy in June 1948 from the Naval Reserve and graduated with the Class of 1952. He served as a Surface Warfare Officer until his retirement as a four-star admiral and Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet on Oct. 1, 1987.

His early years of naval service were with surface combatants where he developed an extraordinary understanding of naval warfare that carried him through a brilliant career. It was also when he met and married Renee Wilcox Chevalier of Washington, D.C., in 1954. She was the love of his life for 64 years.

His early sea assignments included the Sixth Fleet flagship USS Salem (CA 139) and USS Miller (DD 535). Later sea assignments included command of the destroyer USS Charles S. Sperry (DD 967) and guided missile cruiser USS Richmond K. Turner (DLG 20). Intermixed were staff assignments in the Pentagon with the Chief of Naval Operations and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which played a major role in developing the outstanding strategic knowledge that characterized his Navy career. A principal advisor on significant Joint Chiefs of Staff matters, he was key in the development of the Navy Red Cell, an anti-terrorism group comprised of Navy Seals established in response to the 1983 bombing of the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut. He was a graduate of both the Naval War College and the National War College and his shore assignments included wide and significant experience in strategic planning and national security affairs.

In July 1981, upon being promoted to the grade of vice admiral, he took command of the U.S. Second Fleet, where he directed and conducted maritime operations throughout the Atlantic. Admiral Lyons showed his bold, aggressive naval strategies during the Cold War with the Soviet Union without firing a shot. He assumed command of the U.S. Pacific Fleet in September 1985, upon his promotion to admiral. It was during this time that he led three Pacific Fleet ships on the first U.S. Navy ship visit to the People’s Republic of China in 37 years. Also during this tour, he sent the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH-19), a converted oil tanker, on her inaugural mission to provide humanitarian aide to the Philippines and the South Pacific. He continued his active involvement in Project Hope and other humanitarian organization in the United States and overseas after retirement from the Navy.

Admiral Lyons’ Navy awards include two Distinguished Service Medals, the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Navy Expeditionary Medal (Cuba), Humanitarian Service and Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (Lebanon), the French Legion D’Honneur and the Republic of Korea Order of National Security Merit.

In August 1987, Admiral Lyons retired from the Navy after 36 years of service and began an equally impressive career as President/CEO of LION Associates LLC, a premier global consulting company providing National Security advice. He was Chairman of the Center for Security Policy’s Military Committee and the senior member of the Citizens Commission on Benghazi. He served on the Advisory Board to the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and was a consultant to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on issues of counterterrorism. He recently received an IMPACT Award, which honors unsung Leaders Defending Liberty and specifically his profound impact on this country’s liberty and freedom. His actions were driven by a profound desire to do what was right for our country and civilization.”

Assange Extradition Case, “Why’s MSM Largely Ignoring It?”, ANSWER SIMPLE: Assange destroyed their Russian DNC hack narrative, Knows who leaked

Assange Extradition Case, “Why’s MSM Largely Ignoring It?”, ANSWER SIMPLE: Assange destroyed their Russian DNC hack narrative, Knows who leaked

“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.”…George Orwell

“Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”… Joseph Goebbels

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Hillary Clinton, the DNC, the deep state with the help of the Obama Administration and MSM created and perpetuated the narrative of the Russians hacking the DNC data and colluding with the Trump associates.

We now know that as a confirmed fact.

From the get go, Julian Assange stated that it was not the Russians.

And he knows.

Journalist Ellen Ratner met with him in 2016 and he allegedly told her it was an insider.

Ellen Ratner allegedly told Ed Butowsky it was Seth Rich.

From the first sentence in the article below:

“The silence of journalists in Britain and the US over the extradition proceedings against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is making them complicit in the criminalisation of newsgathering by the American government.”

The MSM has been and continues to be complicit in the “criminalisation of newsgathering .”

From Counter Punch October 6, 2020.

“The Assange Extradition Case is an Unprecedented Attack on Press Freedom, So Why’s the Media Largely Ignoring It?”

“Journalism is all about disclosing important news to people so they can judge what is happening in the world – and the actions of their government in particular. The WikiLeaks disclosures in 2010 only differed from other great journalistic scoops in that they were bigger – 251,287 diplomatic cables, more than 400,000 classified army reports from the Iraq War and 90,000 from the Afghan War – and they were more important. [Full disclosure: I gave a statement read out in court this week seeking to explain the significance of the Wikileaks revelations.]

Astonishingly, British and American commentators are in a state of denial when it comes to seeing that what happens to Assange could happen to them. They argue bizarrely that he is not a journalist, though the Trump administration implicitly accepts that he is one, since it is pursuing him for journalistic activities. The motive is openly political, one of the absurdities of the hearing being the pretence that Trump-appointed officials provide a reliable and objective guide to the threat to the US posed by the WikiLeaks revelations.

Why has the British media been so mute about the grim precedent being established for themselves, were they to investigate the doings of a US government that makes no secret of its hostility to critical journalism. Ten years ago, The New York TimesThe GuardianLe MondeDer Spiegel, and El Pais published extracts from the WikiLeak documents on their front pages for days on end, but they long ago distanced themselves from its founder. Yet, however much they may wish the contrary, their future is wrapped up in his fate.”

Seth Rich DNC leaks bombshell, Seymour Hersh court deposition filed Oct 2, 2020 affirms 2017 statements:  Seth Rich Involvement and John Brennan role

Seth Rich DNC leaks bombshell, Seymour Hersh court deposition filed Oct 2, 2020 affirms 2017 statements:  Seth Rich Involvement and John Brennan role

“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”…Bob Herbert, NY Times February 26, 2001

“They found, what he had done, he [Seth Rich] had submitted a series of documents, emails from DNC — and, by the way, all this shit about the DNC, you know, was it a ‘hack’ or wasn’t it a ‘hack’ — whatever happened, it was the Democrats themselves wrote this shit, you know what I mean? All I know is that, he offered a sample, he sends a sample, you know, I am sure dozens of emails, and said ‘I want money’. Later Wikileaks did get the password [SETH RICH DID SELL WIKILEAKS ACCESS INTO HIS COMPUTER.] He had a drop-box, a [password-]protected drop-box, which isn’t hard to do.”…Seymour Hersh

“If This Story Gets Out, We Are Screwed”…Wikileaks: Doug Band to John Podesta

 

Since the 2016 elections we have depended on the following to find the truth about who leaked the DNC docs, the Trump administration, Hillary Campaign and Obama Administrations roles and General Micchael Flynn’s guilt or innocence.

  1. Mainstream media.
  2. Justice Department investigations.
  3. Prosecutions/Persecutions of Michael Flynn, et al.
  4. Lawsuits.
  5. Non mainstream media, “citizen journalism.”

Mainstream media: Not only were they not helpful, they generally colluded with deep state and media forces to mislead and lie to the public. Tell the big lie and keep repeating it.

Justice Department: Deep State and Obama administration holdovers controlled the Justice Dept. and worked with the mainstream media to create an Orwellian type narrative of Russian collusion, involvement in the DNC leaks and guilt of Michael Flynn, et al. It has only been through the efforts of some in Congress and revelations from the Flynn and Seth Rich court and FOIA revelations as well as the growing concerns from Attorney General Barr that finally got the truth ball rolling.

Michael Flynn prosecution and multiple Seth Rich lawsuits: Private sector attorneys such as Sidney Powell and Ty Clevenger were able to bring Justice Dept. chicanery into the light of day helping to awaken the Attorney General. Numerous FOIA requests were enlightening despite repeated efforts by staff such as FBI’s David M Hardy to kept records hidden.

Non mainstream media: Citizen Journalists, smaller media outlets, investigative entities like Judicial Watch, and independent journalists like Seymour Hersh played a crucial role in revealing the truth.

Bombshell News.

Some of you will get this, some may not.

Please read and digest the following carefully.

Seymour Hersh:

“Seymour M. Hersh, a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, author and regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine, is this year’s William Allen White Foundation National Citation recipient.

Hersh’s journalism and publishing awards include the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for exposing the My Lai massacre and cover up during the Vietnam War, in 1969. He has also received five George Polk Awards, two National Magazine Awards, and more than a dozen other prizes for investigative reporting.

In 2004, Hersh exposed the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in a series of pieces in The New Yorker. Early in 2005, he received the National Magazine Award for Public Interest, an Overseas Press Club award, the National Press Foundation’s W. M. Kiplinger Distinguished Contributions to Journalism award, and his fifth George W. Polk award, making him that award’s most honored laureate.

Hersh also has won two Investigative Reporters & Editors prizes, one for “The Price of Power,” in 1983, and the other for “The Samson Option,” a study of American foreign policy and the Israeli nuclear bomb program, in 1992. In 2004, Hersh won a National Magazine Award for public interest for his pieces “Lunch with the Chairman,” “Selective Intelligence,” and “The Stovepipe.”

Ed Butowsky.

Became embroiled in Seth Rich controversies beginning in 2016. He is both a plaintiff and defendant in lawsuits involving the Seth Rich family.

He has also been attacked by the mainstream media for questioning their Orwellian narrative regarding the DNC leaks and Seth Rich’s possible involvement.

Caution: Suspend any tendencies you may have for messenger shooting and disregard any preconceived ideas planted in your brain by the media. Examine the following facts.

First of all, Ed Butowsky had contact with Ellen Ratner soon after she met with Julian Assange late in 2016. She allegedly told him that the DNC leaker was an insider and he has alleged he was told Seth Rich. Ratner has admitted her claim in public. Ellen Ratner, after numerous subpoena attempts, has been engaged for a court ordered deposition.

The following is from a phone conversation Ed Butowsky had with Seymour Hersh in 2017:

“What I know comes off an FBI Report … The kid [Seth Rich was] … a nice boy,
twenty-seven. He was not an IT expert, but he learned stuff. He was a data
programmer … Here’s what nobody knows … when you have a death like that,
DC cops … have to get to the kid’s apartment and see what you can find … so
they get a warrant … They go in the house and they can’t do much with his
computer … They have a cyber unit in DC, and they’re more sophisticated. They
come and look at it. The idea is that maybe he’s had a series of exchanges with
somebody who’s said ‘I’m going to kill you, you motherfucker’ … and they can’t
get in … So, they call the FBI cyber unit. The DC … Washington Field Office is
a hot shit unit … There’s a cyber unit there that’s excellent … The Feds get
through and here’s what they find. This is according to the FBI Report … What
the Report says is that sometime in late Spring … early Summer, he [Seth Rich]
makes contact with WikiLeaks. That’s in his computer … They found what he
had done. He had submitted a series of documents … juicy emails from the DNC
… He [Seth Rich] offered a sample, an extensive sample … of emails, and said I
want money. Later, WikiLeaks did get the password. He had a … protected
dropbox … He also, and this is in the FBI Report, he also let people know with
whom he was dealing … The word was passed, according to the FBI Report, ‘I
also shared this box with a couple of friends, so if anything happens to me, it’s not
going to solve your problems’ … WikiLeaks got access before he was killed.”

Because Hersh is such a respected journalist with extensive contacts, what he stated had to be taken seriously.

It was used in the following lawsuit.

ED Butowsky NPR, et al.

https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/7244731/butowsky-v-folkenflik/

At that point , we had statements from respected journalist Seymour Hersh used in a lawsuit, subject to question in the light of day.

The game changer, the bombshell, happened in a court filing from October 2, 2020 in

Aaron Rich v Ed Butowsky, et al.

Seymour Hersh, in a sworn deposition affirmed what he stated in 2017.

This is monumental.

What he also stated in his 2017 conversation, especially in light of subsequent events, is very powerful.

“I have somebody on the inside, you know I’ve been around a long time, somebody who will go and read a file for me, who, this person is unbelievably accurate and careful, he’s a very high-level guy, he’ll do a favor, you’re just going to have to trust me, I have what they call in my business, long-form journalism, I have a narrative, of how that whole fucking thing began.
(5:50)  – It’s a Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation, and the fucking President, at one point when they even started telling the press — they were back[ground]-briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press, the fucking cocksucker Rogers, telling the press that we [they] even know who in the Russian military intelligence service leaked it. All bullshit. They were telling. I worked at the New York Times those fucking years, they’re smart guys, but they’re totally beholden on [to] sources. If the President or the head of the CIA tells them something, they actually believe it. I retired at the Times at the end of the Vietnam War 1972, because they were just locked-in. So that’s what the Times is, these guys run the fuckin’ Times, and Trump’s not wrong, I wish he would calm down, get a better press secretary, you know, not be so — Trump’s not wrong to think they all fucking lied about him.”

From the Letter to Lindsey Graham from John Ratcliffe, Director of National Intelligence, September 29, 2020.

“Chairman Graham,
SEP 2 9 2020
In response to your request for Intelligence Community (IC) information related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Crossfire Hurricane Investigation, I have declassified the following:
• In late July 2016, U.S. intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.
• According to his handwritten notes, former Central Intelligence Agency Director Brennan subsequently briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence, including the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”
• On 07 September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to FBI Director James Corney and Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok regarding “U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server.”

From the John Podesta testimony December 4, 2017.

“MR. PODESTA: —

The Fusion principals — I assume that was Mr. Simpson and Mr. Fritsch,
although I don’t know that — approached Mr. Elias in April, I believe, of 2016 and told him that they had been working for essentially a Republican entity during the course of the Republican primaries, developing information on Mr. Trump. And they were seeking to continue that work and were seeking a contract from Perkins Coie, which had the authority to contract with outside vendors to do research on behalf of the campaign. And that relationship was entered into, I believe, in April of 2016 and extended till October 31st of 2016.”

“MR. PODESTA: — and a separate arrangement with the campaign.
But the payments to Fusion, as I understand from their statements at the
end of October, were that those payments to their vendor were paid for 50 percent from the DNC and 50 percent from the campaign.
MR. CONAWAY: Okay. Fusion GPS was a 50-50 split?
MR. PODESTA: Yes.”

And the audio recording obtained by NPR shows Hersh referring to an insider source who describes an FBI report reflecting that Rich had leaked information to WikiLeaks.”...NPR

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich.

Motion to Compel Disclosure.

“Sy Hersh (“Mr. Hersh”) is a well-known journalist central to the dispute between Aaron Rich (“Plaintiff” or “Aaron”) and Defendants. Mr. Hersh was recorded by Defendant Edward Butowsky (“Butowsky”) in 2017 stating that Mr. Hersh had a source who had told him that according to an FBI report, Seth Rich transmitted emails to Wikileaks, requested payment, and made copies of the material transmitted as a form of protection.

From Seymour Hersh recording in August 2017.

“I’ll tell you what I know. What I know comes off an FBI report. Don’t ask me how. You can figure out I’ve been around long enough. This isaccording to the FBI report. What they find is he [Rich] makes con[tact]. First of all, you have to know, you have to know some basic facts. One of the basic facts, is there’s no DNC or Podesta email that exists beyond May 22nd, May 21st, 22nd, the last emails from either one of those groups. And so what the report says is that sometime in late spring—we’re talking about June, you know, summer and June 21st, late spring would be after, I presume . . . I don’t know. I just say late spring, early summer, he [Rich] makes contact with Wikileaks. That’s in his computer and he makes contact. They [FBI investigators] found what he had done. He had submitted a series of documents, of emails, some juicy emails from the DNC. He offered a sample, an extensive sample—y’know I’m sure dozens of email—and said, “I want money.”

Later Wikileaks did get the password. He had a Dropbox, a protected Dropbox, which isn’t hardto do. I mean you don’t have to be a wizard, IT wizard. Y’know he was certainly not a dumb kid, and they got access to the Dropbox. He [Rich] also, and this is also in the FBI report, he’d also let people know with whom he was dealing, and I don’t know how he dealt—I’ll tell you about Wikileaks in a second. I don’t know how he dealt with Wikileaks—the mechanism. But he also, the word was passed, according to the FBI report, “I also shared this box with a couple of friends, so if anything happens to me, you’re not, it’s not going to solve your [their?] problem.” OK? I don’t know what that means, I don’t know what he was … anyway, but Wikileaks got access and before he was killed.”

Seth Rich coverup Part 4, Seth Rich murdered July 10, 2016, Julian Assange murder considered December 2017?, Assange extradition hearing testimony

Seth Rich coverup Part 4, Seth Rich murdered July 10, 2016, Julian Assange murder considered December 2017?, Assange extradition hearing testimony

“Replying to this last point, the prosecution pointed out that a Grand Jury against Assange had been established by Obama and there was no indication the investigation had been closed. Feldstein agreed, the “Obama administration was very eager to file charges against Assange and they conducted a very aggressive investigation.” All of which speaks for the point that Assange is being sought for political reasons—motivations which are common to the whole American ruling class. It was current Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden who branded the WikiLeaks publisher and journalist a “high-tech terrorist.””…Laura Tiernan and Thomas Scripps, Sept 9, 2020

“In the media, Hannity has been one of the loudest voices to warn of the dangers of a “deep state”. On Thursday, he called for Mr Trump to “purge” the executive branch of Obama-era bureaucrats and appointees.”…The Telegraph March 11, 2017

“Why John Brennan, Peter Strzok and DOJ Needed Julian Assange Arrested”…The Conservative Treehouse November 3, 2019

 

Fact: Seth Rich was murdered July 10, 2016.

Fact: There is a mountain of evidence that indicates Rich was involved in the DNC leak.

Fact: Julian Assange is the one man still alive who can confirm Seth Rich’s involvement in the leak.

Fact: Witness testimony in the Julian Assange extradition hearing just indicated that the CIA considered killing him in December 2017.

Fact: US prosecution of Assange was spearheaded by Obama holdovers.

From Consortium News September 30, 2020.

“FINAL REPORT: ASSANGE HEARING DAY SEVENTEEN—US Intel Spying on Assange Detailed in Court, Including Plans to Kidnap or Poison Him”

“United States intelligence discussed plans to kidnap or poison Julian Assange, the court was told on Wednesday.

After the prosecution said it was unable to do checks on the two anonymous witnesses from the UC Global case in Spain, defense attorney Mark Summers read out the testimony in court a day earlier than had been expected.”

“The witness said the Americans were “very nervous” about the visit of then California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher to Assange. “Morales asked me to control everything to do with that visit,” the witness said. ”

“In December 2017, the witness testified that “the U.S. was desperate” to get Assange out of the embassy, and that “more extreme measures should be used.”

“Leaving the embassy door open to allow Mr. Assange to be kidnapped and even poisoning was under consideration,” the witness testified Morales told him.  Summers for the defense then explained to the court how both witnesses approached an attorney who contact a court in Madrid that ordered an arrest warrant and search of Morales’ home, and issued charges against him.”

From Citizen Wells September 18, 2020.

“The left, the Democrats, the Deep State. Obama holdovers employing high powered law firms and corrupt judges have done their best to hide and obfuscate the truth surrounding the DNC leaks and possible involvement by Seth Rich.

Many of those asking questions early on such as Fox News and the Washington Times were threatened and subsequently sued or threatened to be.

At least 4 lawsuits are still active involving the Rich Family, Fox News, Ed Butowsky and others.

Many of us question how the Rich Family could afford such expensive law firms.

On March 1, 2018 the Washington Times posted an Analysis/Opinion by Admiral James A. Lyons. It was scrubbed by the Times after a lawsuit was threatened by Aaron Rich. It is presented in entirety from the Wayback Machine.

“With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug.

The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath.”

“With regard to the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC server, Mr. Assange also offered information to the Trump administration to prove Russia didn’t hack the DNC server, as the DNC claimed. Mr. Assange also met with Orange Country Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican, and gave him information to present to the Trump administration to prove no one hacked the DNC server.

However, with the Obama holdovers in key positions, it is not surprising that no one from the Trump administration would meet with the congressman or Mr. Assange. New Zealand tech expert Kim DotCom said he has proof that both he and Seth Rich were involved in passing the emails to Wikileaks, but he has been ignored as well.”

Seth Rich coverup Part 4, Donna Brazile, Mayor Bowser, Amy Dacey names resurface in Matthew Couch subpoena motion, Brazile lie? If so why?

Seth Rich coverup Part 4, Donna Brazile, Mayor Bowser, Amy Dacey names resurface in Matthew Couch subpoena motion, Brazile lie? If so why?

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

“The FBI clearly has records pertaining to Seth Rich, and it has withheld those
records in bad faith.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger October 11, 2019

” So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020

 

You may not have heard much about Donna Brazile, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, John Podesta, Certainly not Amy Dacey and their ties to Seth Rich and his mysterious death lately.

Old news? Definitely not.

Most of their names resurfaced a few days ago in filings from Matthew Couch, one of the defendants in Aaron Rich v Ed Butowsky, Matthew Couch and  America’First Media.

From Citizen Wells September 27, 2020.

“MOTION TO COMPEL

“Defendant Matthew Couch served a subpoena on Detective Joseph DellaCamera of the Metropolitan Police Department (“MPD”) in Washington, D.C. seeking the following:
1. All Documents and Communications relating to
a. Seth Rich, Aaron Rich, Joel Rich, Mary Rich, Kelsey Mulka, Joe Capone, Dov
Friedman, Eric Baker, Michael Cass-Antony, Rod Wheeler, Edward Butowsky,

Of the prominent players tied to the DNC leaks, who had the biggest reasons to silence the leaker and was Seth Rich involved?

Clinton camp? 

From a John Podesta email on Hillary’s reaction: “she is whipped up on actual damage.”   https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/35361

David Schippers in October 21, 2016 interview by Sandy Rios on American Family Association radio: Hillary: “If you want to talk about real evil, it’s her”

DNC?

Anyone affiliated with could be suspect.

John Podesta?

“I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.”   https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/36082

Donna Brazile?

Damaged severely by DNC leak revelations and acted strangely.

  • Apparently lied about being out of town July 10, 2016 when the murder of Seth Rich took place. She left for Seattle later in the day. Why lie?
  • Was outed for giving Hillary Clinton debate question(s).
  • CNN severed ties with her.
  • Stated: “these sad ass whipper leakers try to slow my groove”
  • Matt Drudge: “Brazile writes she was haunted by murder of DNC Seth Rich, and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds so snipers could not see her ?” Did she know it was an assassination and perhaps who ordered it?

The following facts and/or allegations surrounding Brazile are interesting:

  • Some believe that Brazile and DC Mayor Bowser are married. They are nevertheless close.
  • It has been alleged that Brazile and Bowser were present at the hospital Seth Rich was taken to.
  • All indications were that Rich was stable at the hospital and expected to live.
  • Allegedly, a nurse that worked in the ICU said that Seth made it through surgery and was expected to pull through until the next day when D.C. Police and other individuals came barging in, CLEARED THE ICU OF MEDICAL STAFF(For some reason)! and then he died!
  • Allegedly, from 4th year surgery resident: “No one here was allowed to see Seth except for my attending when he died. No code was called. I rounded on patients literally next door but was physically blocked from checking in on him. I’ve never seen anything like it before, and while I can’t say 100% that he was allowed to die, I don’t understand why he was treated like that. Take it how you may, /pol/, I’m just one low level doc. Something’s fishy though, that’s for sure.”
  • It has been alleged that Brazile tried to stifle an investigation by the DC police.
  • Homicide detective Rod Wheeler: “The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,”
  • Washington DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier resigned August 16, 2016 later stating:   “The criminal justice system in this city is broken,”
  • News media Fox and others were sued by the Rich family. Joel, Mary and Aaron. High powered law firms have been employed.

 

Clearly, the people subpoenaed by Matthew Couch need to be questioned.

Clearly, if the DOJ and Durham are not investigating the Seth Rich murder and possible involvement in the DNC leaks, we have a huge problem.

We now know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the forces of the Deep State, the Obama Administration, the DOJ, the DNC, et al have actively been suppressing and obfuscating events and facts leading up to and following the 2016 election to protect their asses and try to destroy President Trump.

With the clarity of this knowledge and 20/20 hindsight, the actions of those above are more understandable and plausible.

Why in God’s name did Fox take on Brazile as a contributor?

She has been in league with many of the forces aligned against Fox and the truth about Seth Rich.

Did Amy Dacey out Seth Rich as the leaker?

“Seth Rich was suspected of leaking the DNC’s emails to Wikileaks. It’s likely that Amy Dacey, the DNC’s CEO found out that Seth was the leaker. She informed John Podesta, Hillary’s Campaign Manager,. He responded, I’m”definitely for making an example out of a suspected leaker, whether or not we have any real basis for it.”

Reading between the lines here, but if DNC insider and interim Chair Donna Brazile  truly believed that Seth Rich was randomly mugged in his  neighborhood at 4:20 AM, her paranoia would not exist.

This may be the ultimate inside story that Brazile knew about, but as is her MO, kept under wraps.  She will likely remain haunted until she comes clean. ”

“Fox News Wins Seth Rich Lawsuit; Judge Dismisses

A New York City judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the parents of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich on Thursday that asserted Fox News Channel colluded with the White House to propel a false, politically-biased narrative about Rich’s death.”

“It is understandable that plaintiffs might feel that their grief and personal loss were taken advantage of, and that the tragic death of their son was exploited for political purposes,” but Fox evidently did not intend to inflict emotional distress, Judge George Daniels wrote in his decision.””

“Why John Brennan, Peter Strzok and DOJ Needed Julian Assange Arrested”…The Conservative Treehouse November 3, 2019

 

The left, the Democrats, the Deep State. Obama holdovers employing high powered law firms and corrupt judges have done their best to hide and obfuscate the truth surrounding the DNC leaks and possible involvement by Seth Rich.

Many of those asking questions early on such as Fox News and the Washington Times were threatened and subsequently sued or threatened to be.

At least 4 lawsuits are still active involving the Rich Family, Fox News, Ed Butowsky and others.

Many of us question how the Rich Family could afford such expensive law firms.

On March 1, 2018 the Washington Times posted an Analysis/Opinion by Admiral James A. Lyons. It was scrubbed by the Times after a lawsuit was threatened by Aaron Rich. It is presented in entirety from the Wayback Machine.

“With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug.

The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath.

The facts that we know of in the murder of the DNC staffer, Seth Rich, was that he was gunned down blocks from his home on July 10, 2016. Washington Metro police detectives claim that Mr. Rich was a robbery victim, which is strange since after being shot twice in the back, he was still wearing a $2,000 gold necklace and watch. He still had his wallet, key and phone. Clearly, he was not a victim of robbery.

This has all the earmarks of a targeted hit job. However, strangely no one has been charged with this horrific crime, and what is more intriguing is that no law enforcement agency is even investigating this murder. According to other open sources, Metro police were told by their “higher ups” that if they spoke about the case, they will be immediately terminated. It has been claimed that this order came down from very high up the “food chain,” well beyond the D.C. mayor’s office. Interesting.

One more unexplained twist is that on July 10, 2016, the same day Seth Rich was murdered, an FBI agent’s car was burglarized in the same vicinity. Included in the FBI equipment stolen was a 40 caliber Glock 22. D.C. Metro police issued a press release, declaring that the theft of the FBI agent’s car occurred between 5 and 7 a.m. Two weeks later, the FBI changed the time of the theft to between 12 a.m. and 2 a.m. Was the FBI gun used to shoot Seth Rich? Neither the FBI nor the Metro police will discuss.

Another aspect that needs to be uncovered is the FBI’s “denial” that its cyber experts who share space with the D.C. Metro police department at Cleveland Avenue in the District, assisted in accessing data on Mr. Rich’s laptop. Not likely. Data on the laptop revealed that Mr. Rich downloaded thousands of DNC emails and was in touch with Wikileaks. The file with evidence of what was on Mr. Rich’s laptop sits with the FBI in a co-shared space with the D.C. police department. According to Ed Butowsky, an acquaintance of the family, in his discussions with Joel and Mary Rich, they confirmed that their son transmitted the DNC emails to Wikileaks.

Since then, the DNC hired a “spokesperson,” Brad Burman, a known hatchet man to basically cut off any further communications with Mr. Rich’s parents. Interestingly, it is well known in the intelligence circles that Seth Rich and his brother, Aaron Rich, downloaded the DNC emails and was paid by Wikileaks for that information.

While Wikileaks doesn’t expose sources, Julian Assange gave a clear clue during an Aug. 9, 2016 interview on Dutch television when he implied that Mr. Rich was killed because he was the Wikileaks source of the DNC emails. Mr. Assange offered a $20,000 reward leading to the arrest of Mr. Rich’s killers. Also, why hasn’t Aaron Rich been interviewed, and where is he?

With regard to the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC server, Mr. Assange also offered information to the Trump administration to prove Russia didn’t hack the DNC server, as the DNC claimed. Mr. Assange also met with Orange Country Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican, and gave him information to present to the Trump administration to prove no one hacked the DNC server.

However, with the Obama holdovers in key positions, it is not surprising that no one from the Trump administration would meet with the congressman or Mr. Assange. New Zealand tech expert Kim DotCom said he has proof that both he and Seth Rich were involved in passing the emails to Wikileaks, but he has been ignored as well.

The FBI opened an investigation into the theft of the DNC emails in July 2016. However, the FBI has not inspected the DNC server because the DNC won’t give permission. Is the FBI an extension of the DNC? That’s why we have subpoenas. Instead, the FBI relied on an assessment by a cyber security firm, Crowd Strike, hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC’s law firm Perkins Coie as proof that Russia was the hacker. Incompetence is an understatement. Corruption at the highest levels of the DOJ/FBI is clear.

The Trump administration must take charge and get a competent attorney general to pursue these crimes.”

https://web.archive.org/web/20180317141023/https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/mar/1/more-cover-up-questions/

The original link now yields:

– – Sunday, September 30, 2018

The Washington Times published an op-ed column titled, “More cover-up questions: The curious murder of Seth Rich poses questions that just won’t stay under the official rug,” by Adm. James Lyons (Ret.) (the “Column”), on March 1 online and on March 2 in its paper editions. The Column included statements about Aaron Rich, the brother of former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, that we now believe to be false.

One such statement was that: “Interestingly, it is well known in the intelligence circles that Seth Rich and his brother, Aaron Rich, downloaded the DNC emails and was paid by Wikileaks for that information.” The Washington Times now does not have any basis to believe any part of that statement to be true, and The Washington Times retracts it in its entirety.

The Column also stated: “Also, why hasn’t Aaron Rich been interviewed [by law enforcement], and where is he?” The Washington Times understands that law enforcement officials have interviewed Mr. Rich and that he has cooperated with their investigation. The Washington Times did not intend to imply that Mr. Rich has obstructed justice in any way, and The Washington Times retracts and disavows any such implication.”

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/sep/30/retraction-aaron-rich-and-murder-seth-rich/

One of the usual left supporting sites Wikipedia, provided the following:

“On March 1, 2018, the Washington Times published an article by Lyons prompting a conspiracy theory around the death of Democratic Party staffer Seth Rich. The article falsely claimed it was “well known in the intelligence circles” that Rich and his brother were paid by WikiLeaks for the DNC emails, which the leaks site published online, causing chaos in the Democratic party during the 2016 election.[4] The family sued, and the article was retracted with an apology.”

No one at Wikipedia was qualified to state the following:

“The article falsely claimed it was “well known in the intelligence circles” that Rich and his brother were paid by WikiLeaks for the DNC emails”

A more honest reporting would be to state that the claim was as yet uncorroborated.

Admiral James A. Lyons, however, is imminently qualified to speak about intelligence matters.

From one of his obituaries:

“Born in New Jersey to James A. and Marion F. Lyons, he entered the United States Naval Academy in June 1948 from the Naval Reserve and graduated with the Class of 1952. He served as a Surface Warfare Officer until his retirement as a four-star admiral and Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet on Oct. 1, 1987.

His early years of naval service were with surface combatants where he developed an extraordinary understanding of naval warfare that carried him through a brilliant career. It was also when he met and married Renee Wilcox Chevalier of Washington, D.C., in 1954. She was the love of his life for 64 years.

His early sea assignments included the Sixth Fleet flagship USS Salem (CA 139) and USS Miller (DD 535). Later sea assignments included command of the destroyer USS Charles S. Sperry (DD 967) and guided missile cruiser USS Richmond K. Turner (DLG 20). Intermixed were staff assignments in the Pentagon with the Chief of Naval Operations and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which played a major role in developing the outstanding strategic knowledge that characterized his Navy career. A principal advisor on significant Joint Chiefs of Staff matters, he was key in the development of the Navy Red Cell, an anti-terrorism group comprised of Navy Seals established in response to the 1983 bombing of the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut. He was a graduate of both the Naval War College and the National War College and his shore assignments included wide and significant experience in strategic planning and national security affairs.

In July 1981, upon being promoted to the grade of vice admiral, he took command of the U.S. Second Fleet, where he directed and conducted maritime operations throughout the Atlantic. Admiral Lyons showed his bold, aggressive naval strategies during the Cold War with the Soviet Union without firing a shot. He assumed command of the U.S. Pacific Fleet in September 1985, upon his promotion to admiral. It was during this time that he led three Pacific Fleet ships on the first U.S. Navy ship visit to the People’s Republic of China in 37 years. Also during this tour, he sent the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH-19), a converted oil tanker, on her inaugural mission to provide humanitarian aide to the Philippines and the South Pacific. He continued his active involvement in Project Hope and other humanitarian organization in the United States and overseas after retirement from the Navy.

Admiral Lyons’ Navy awards include two Distinguished Service Medals, the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Navy Expeditionary Medal (Cuba), Humanitarian Service and Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (Lebanon), the French Legion D’Honneur and the Republic of Korea Order of National Security Merit.

In August 1987, Admiral Lyons retired from the Navy after 36 years of service and began an equally impressive career as President/CEO of LION Associates LLC, a premier global consulting company providing National Security advice. He was Chairman of the Center for Security Policy’s Military Committee and the senior member of the Citizens Commission on Benghazi. He served on the Advisory Board to the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and was a consultant to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on issues of counterterrorism. He recently received an IMPACT Award, which honors unsung Leaders Defending Liberty and specifically his profound impact on this country’s liberty and freedom. His actions were driven by a profound desire to do what was right for our country and civilization.”

Assange hearing Sept. 18, 2020, Attorney Jennifer Robinson relates Congressman Dana  Rohrabacher 2017 visit, Pardon offer for source of DNC leaks

Assange hearing Sept. 18, 2020, Attorney Jennifer Robinson relates Congressman Dana  Rohrabacher 2017 visit, Pardon offer for source of DNC leaks

“Replying to this last point, the prosecution pointed out that a Grand Jury against Assange had been established by Obama and there was no indication the investigation had been closed. Feldstein agreed, the “Obama administration was very eager to file charges against Assange and they conducted a very aggressive investigation.” All of which speaks for the point that Assange is being sought for political reasons—motivations which are common to the whole American ruling class. It was current Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden who branded the WikiLeaks publisher and journalist a “high-tech terrorist.””…Laura Tiernan and Thomas Scripps, Sept 9, 2020

“Offer to Julian Assange in 2017

7:24 am EDT: Jennifer Robinson, a member of Assange’s legal team, had a statement read out in court on her behalf in which she recounted a visit by then U.S. Congressman Dana  Rohrabacher to Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Aug. 15, 2017 where Robison was present.

Robinson said in her statement that Rohrabacher claimed to be representing President Donald Trump on a mission in which the president would look favorably on preventing an indictment of Assange in return for the WikiLeaks publisher naming his source for the Democratic National Committee emails.

The leaks before the 2016 U.S. presidential election had led to a firestorm of allegations that Russia had provided those documents and that Trump was somehow in league with Russia and WikiLeaks to hurt his Democratic challenger, Hilary Clinton.

Rohrabacher told Assange, according to Robinson’s statement, that Assange could help Trump politically as well as to end the dangerous escalation of Cold War-like tensions between Russia and the United States if he could provide evidence of who the actual leaker of the Democratic emails was. “Rohrabacher proposed a ‘win-win’ situation, Mr. Assange can get ‘get on with his life’ – a pardon in exchange for information about the source,” Robinson’s statement said. “Information from Mr. Assange about the source of the DNC leaks would be of value to Mr. Trump.”

Assange refused, Robinson’s statement said.

James Lewis QC for the prosecution rose after the statement was read to say the U.S. government contested the truth of Robinson’s statement.”

“My Meeting with Julian Assange

2/19/2020

There is a lot of misinformation floating out there regarding my meeting with Julian Assange so let me provide some clarity on the matter: 

At no time did I talk to President Trump about Julian Assange.  Likewise, I was not directed by Trump or anyone else connected with him to meet with Julian Assange. I was on my own fact finding mission at personal expense to find out information I thought was important to our country.  I was shocked to find out that no other member of Congress had taken the time in their official or unofficial capacity to interview Julian Assange.  At no time did I offer Julian Assange anything from the President because I had not spoken with the President about this issue at all.  However, when speaking with Julian Assange, I told him that if he could provide me information and evidence about who actually gave him the DNC emails, I would then call on President Trump to pardon him. At no time did I offer a deal made by the President, nor did I say I was representing the President. Upon my return, I spoke briefly with Gen. Kelly. I told him that Julian Assange would provide information about the purloined DNC emails in exchange for a pardon. No one followed up with me including Gen. Kelly and that was the last discussion I had on this subject with anyone representing Trump or in his Administration.  

Even though I wasn’t successful in getting this message through to the President I still call on him to pardon Julian Assange, who is the true whistleblower of our time.  Finally, we are all holding our breath waiting for an honest investigation into the murder of Seth Rich.”
